Cream Cheese Stuffed Dates
Day 232 (18th April)
In the spirit of Ramadan, I made some cream cheese stuffed dates! I've been following (stalking?) mycomfortbakes on Instagram, and she's been posting Ramadan-related content every day. I've been salivating at the sight of all the iftar and suhoor foods!
Quick knowledge nugget: Muslims usually break their fast during Ramadan by eating dates. Prophet Muhammad is quoted to have said, "When one of you is fasting, he should break his fast with dates; but if he cannot get any, then (he should break his fast) with water, for water is purifying."
All I did to stuff these dates was slice vertically on a few dates, remove the seeds, pipe cream cheese into them, and sprinkle some nuts on top. They tasted so good! I didn't feel the need to add honey to the cream cheese to sweeten it because the date was quite sweet. You could always add powdered sugar or honey for extra sugar, though!
See you tomorrow :)
The picture looks a little hazy, but the other ones I took are somehow even worse. :( Just wanted the record to state that I know. I know.
